Issues with Vertex 3 on Sata II MB.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sup. Bought at Vertex 3. I tried to install it with ahci enabled, but i kept getting a blue screen. It was so fast i couldn't tell what it was saying. Also, I had 2 other older drives connected. One was for storage and the other was W7 on my as my original OS on an HD. At the moment I'm typing this with the drive in IDE mode. Boot up isn't quite that fast, but everything else is flying. I am going to buy a new MB and FX 3850 at some some point, but am buying the parts one piece at a time. What did I do wrong with trying to install in ahci?

You can use the MS Fix it tool or edit the registry yourself.

Regedit:
  1. Exit all Windows-based programs.
  2. Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
  3. Now type Regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window. (If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.)
  4. Locate and then click the following registry sub key:
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci
    
  5. In the right pane right-click Start in the Name column and then click Modify.
  6. In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.
  7. On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
  8. Restart your computer
  9. Go to UEFI/BIOS and enable AHCI, Save & Reboot
  10. Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.
